Little Island Lake – Campsite #3
I had really mixed feelings about this campsite. At first, when I pulled up the canoe, I thought I would hate it. The landing was really bad in the high water levels and I couldn’t even see the campsite from the water. I just assumed it would be a really bad, small, enclosed campsite. Well, I was definitely wrong. The main campsite area is a short walk away from the canoe landing, maybe 30-40 feet. But once you get to the campsite, it’s pretty amazing. The fire pit has tons of flat seating surrounding it and is pretty nice itself. It has its own section of the campsite off to the side. There are a couple patches of flat ground beside the fire pit for you to pitch your tent, but the whole campsite is basically just one big flat massive tent spot. There’s a huge open uncovered section of the site that’s realistically 50 feet long; you could legitimately throw a baseball or football, or pitch as many tents as needed. There are a few more sheltered tent spots as well in case you have bad weather. So the campsite really does have everything that you need, it’s just a bit of a walk from the canoe landing. In lower water levels the canoe landing looks like it would be a beach landing, so that may offer a place to sit and look out onto the lake. Personally, I really dislike campsites that don’t offer nice views and that are located far inland, so I had really conflicting feelings about this site, because other than those things, the site was perfect.
